I know...it's more Christmas cards...


I had these pictures saved as drafts and I never wrote the info to actually get them ready to post! So here they are...and I still have a few that I received that I am going to share as soon as I photograph them. The snowman is another Whipper Snapper image and one of my favorites. Wait, I think I say that about every WS image, whatever. His hat and scarf are paper pieced and the rest colored with Copics. The background paper an old piece of Memory Box I think..it's from my scraps. I also attempted sewing on this. I'm a bit rusty, but now that I have cleaned up my desk and can actually get to my sewing machine I can practice a bit more! I sparkled up the snowflake a bit too.
Stamps: Whipper Snapper Designs, Sentiment from Anna Wight'sNorth Pole Post
Paper: PTI kraft, Memory Box, Neenah Solar Crest White
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Copics, button, Martha Stewart snowflake punch, Stickles, Marvy Liquid Applique, clear ep.

This adorable bird ornament and branch is from a clear set by Inkadinkadoo. I stamped him and then extended the string he's hanging from so it would go into the branches. Since I made this before Christmas I am gonna guess on some of the inks I used. It was most likely Versa Magic as they seem to work the best on clear stamps. Probably Red Brick and Spanish Olive...whatever matched the gorgeous Heidi Grace holly paper. The awning, which is popped up, I believe is Reminisce. The sentiment is from Anna Wight's North Pole Post and the hardware is Hodge Podge from SU! Ribbon is from my stash...God only knows where it came from...really.

I will probably post a few more before this week is over (and that's soon!) but I have already moved onto birthday and Valentines...Hope everyone is enjoying their last days of the holiday season...it's back to work on Monday for me, blah!!!

PS - does anyone else's cat sit on their shoulder like a parrot while they are typing, reading, watching tv, etc...just curious.
